The sample comprised 70 students of Banchangkarnchanakulwittaya School, Rayong, in the academic year 2017, obtained through random assignment and matching into two groups. Thirty-five students were assigned into the experimental group, and another 35 into the control group. The research instruments were the growth mindset program and a mindset assessment scale. Two comparisons were made. The first was comparing the growth mindset score of the experimental group with the control group after the experiment; and compare the growth mindset score after the experiment with the score before the experiment, employing t-test.


           The research findings were summarized as follows:


  1. The students in the experimental group demonstrated higher growth mindset score in the post-test than the pre-test, with statistical significance at the .05 level.

  2. The students in the experimental group demonstrated higher growth mindset score in post-test than the control group, with statistical significance at the .05 level.
